Who Knew An Angel Could Get A Girl In So Much Devilish Trouble?

Jackie Brighton woke up in a Dumpster this morning, and her day has only gotten weirder. Her familiar B-cups have somehow become double Ds, her sex drive is insatiable, and apparently she had her first one-night stand ever...with a fallen angel. All she remembers is gorgeous Noah's oddly hypnotic blue eyes...and then a dark stranger whose bite transformed her into an immortal siren with a sexy itch. With help from Noah, Jackie begins to adapt to her new lifestyle; until she accidentally sends Noah into the deadly clutches of the vampire queen and lands herself in a fierce battle for an ancient halo with the queen's wickedly hot righthand man. Who just happens to be the vampire who originally bit her. How's a girl supposed to save the world when the enemy's so hard to resist?

Ever since reading the Georgina Kincaid series by Richelle Mead I'm always looking for more books about Succubi. I tried Succubus in the City by Nina Harper but couldn't finish. And after reading this one I'm really glad I missed my train that one day, and had no other option than spend some time in the bookstore at Grand Central..

Jackie is a witty and hilarious girl who wakes up in a dumpster and finds out that she's now a succubus. Because of this interesting opening chapter I was immediately hooked. Finished it within 24 hours because I couldn't stop reading. It was too bad I had to go to sleep and stop reading, otherwise I would've finished it in one sitting. Yes, I liked it that much.

Noah seemed like the perfect guy for Jackie at first. Kind, caring and understanding. Oh, and a super sexy body. But then there was Zane. *Sigh* Now that's a man, or well, a vampire, who can come visit me any time he likes. Of course this means the typical love-triangle lots of writers seem to like so much. And so do I! I'm a sucker for love-triangles actually. And with this series I'm very much team Zane. 

I loved the epilogue, which you ladies will definitely understand after reading it. The thing that makes me give it 4,5 stars is the part before that. Some things didn't make sense to me but I can't talk about this without giving spoilers, so if you want to know what I'm talking about, you can always contact me. Overall it was a very fun and sexy read. Looking forward to part two!
